Brisbane’s new hotel FV by Peppers opened its doors on Thursday 1 March, with Mantra Group’s Chief Operating Officer Tomas Johnsson, the Minister for Innovation, Tourism Industry Development and the Commonwealth Games, and the Honourable Kate Jones on hand to cut the ribbon. FV’s three towers Flatiron, Valley House and No. 1, developed by luxury property developer Gurner, are inspired by New York’s flatiron building. Though only two out of the three 30 storey towers are completed, FV by Peppers will comprise 986 spacious one and two bedroom apartments.

The $600 million high end development in Fortitude Valley’s Alfred Street will offer a mixture of hotel rooms and long term letting. The luxury amenities at FV by Peppers include a heated U-shaped skyline pool with in-pool seating overlooking the spectacular Brisbane CBD.

Guests will also have a moonlight cinema and a yoga retreat at their disposal, as well as a fully equipped gym and three beautiful VIP private spa lounges. Six by FV is the hotels onsite restaurant. It is available for all day in-room dining options, and is also open to hotel guests and residents for breakfast and dinner. The range of delicious meal options similarly reflect the New York influence.

Johnsson said the company was proud to have officially opened FV by Peppers. “FV by Peppers is a landmark hotel with high-end luxe amenities designed to appeal equally to the Valley’s leisure visitors and the fast-growing business visitor and corporate marker,” he said. Minister Kate Jones said the “opening is a vote of confidence in Queensland’s tourism industry and sets an impressive new benchmark in Brisbane’s quality hotel offering.” Peppers customer service will round out the hotel’s understated sophistication. The 24-hour reception, valet parking and Wi-Fi attends to customer’s needs without intruding on their time.
